Well I am finally back in Chicago after a short but sweet trip to Paris.

Last week, I joined A French Frye in Paris for a post stroll café chat. You can see it all here. I answer some of your questions about Paris and it was so fun to be in front of the camera for a change. 

For the walk on the Left Bank with A French Frye in Paris you can see it here. I was SO happy to see all of you join in on the fun. Thank you for your support! 


A few Things I am loving right now:

This Bonjour Sweater from JCrew

These adorable socks arrived as a gift from my friend Kat. I can now guarantee that two days out of the week my socks won’t have holes 🙂 

Diptyque has a new Rose scented candle that I got to smell in Paris. I LOVE it. Hint, Valentine’s Day present.

Sisley just introduced a new eye pencil. I am loving the champagne color my friend Magali sent me. I already tested it out this weekend and I can’t wait to wear it again soon. The pencil goes on so easily so you don’t need a brush and it is small enough to toss in your bag. 

I got a haircut this weekend, my bangs are growing so fast so I shortened them a bit and I freshened up my color. It is the perfect shade of chocolate brown. Did you know I have had grey hair since I was 15?  I am headed to NYC this week for a launch party that involves hair so it was perfect timing. I have been going to the same hair person for a year now (which might be a record now) Tell Demi that I sent you if you are in Chicago.
